Apple TV+ leans mostly on narrative fiction, but the streaming service isn’t afraid to deal with real world topics. Documentary series help with that, and there are three new options coming down the pipe.
Apple announced today a new slate of documentary series heading to its streaming service this fall. The trio will focus on different aspects of the world, but two primarily deal with nature as a whole. The first of the three Tiny World (pictured above), will debut on Friday, October 2. Meanwhile, Becoming You will make its premiere on November 13. And finally, Earth at Night in Color will land on Apple TV+ on Friday, December 4.
Here’s the description of each:
Narrated by Paul Rudd, “Tiny World” takes a unique perspective on the natural world, exploring the ingenuity and resilience of the smallest animals on the planet. Brand new camera technology allows us, for the very first time, to see the world through the eyes of the tiniest creatures and witness the extraordinary things they do to survive. “Tiny World” is produced by Plimsoll Productions, and written and executive produced by Tom Hugh Jones. Dr. Martha Holmes and Grant Mansfield also serve as executive producers on behalf of Plimsoll Productions.
The first six episodes of this docuseries will be available on launch.
Olivia Colman narrates “Becoming You,” a global child development series that explores how the first 2,000 days on Earth shape the rest of our lives. Told through the eyes of over 100 children across the world, from Nepal to Japan and Borneo, each episode offers a thought-provoking look at how children learn to think, speak and move, from birth to age 5. It underscores how different our journeys can be, but ultimately tells the story of our shared humanity and community when it comes to raising children. This series is produced by Wall to Wall Media and is executive produced by Leanne Klein and Hamo Forsyth.
Yet again, expect the first six episodes to debut on day one.
Earth at Night in Color
A landmark natural history series narrated by Tom Hiddleston, “Earth At Night In Color” uses next-generation cameras to reveal the nocturnal lives of animals, in color, for the first time ever. Filmed across six continents, from the Arctic Circle to the African grasslands, this pioneering series follows the moonlit dramas of animals at night, revealing new insights and never-before-seen behaviors. “Earth At Night In Color” is produced by Offspring Films. The series is executive produced by Alex Williamson and Isla Robertson, and produced by Sam Hodgson.
Six episodes will premiere globally on December 3.
